Siempre Tango Special Milongas


Coriole Winery Click for map
Sunday January 26th 2025. 7.30-11.30pm

Entry $30 incl. wines

Up until the end of 2023 Siempre Tango hosted alternate month special milongas at the Dom Polski Centre, 230 Angas St, Adelaide.

Sadly sharply increased venue costs have made this much liked event non-viable, so from 2024 those milongas have been moved to Thursday nights at the elegant and beautiful North Adelaide Community Centre (NACC) in Tynte Street, North Adelaide.



Musings on Tango

In memory of Alberto Podesta

Posted: 23:16, Sunday 20 December 2015 by Lucy Lu

Alberto Podesta has left this world to sing for God. In milongas, every DJ played a special tanda in memory of the great singer.

Personally, NADA is my favorite song from Podesta. This recent live performance below was recorded by a friend visiting BsAs. Such a beautiful voice….

How would you dance if this is your last song together?

Posted: 00:43, Monday 8 June 2015 by Lucy Lu

Updated: 23:10, Friday 28 February 2020 by Michael Speck

Full of emotions in this song. Maybe it is the song itself, or maybe it was Pablo and Noelia’s last song performed together as a couple. She chose a Chilean as dancing partner and married to an Italian later, and she is famous and popular over the world. Do you know who he is?
